A DEAD BODY

"That seems true enough," was the reply. "It spoils Veronica's theory now, doesn't it?"
" No! I don't think so," answered Ajax. "But in any case, I never believed in it-it was too fantastic."
" Well! Come on. Let's get the police," Bunny said in resigned tones.
They hurried out of the mill garden and set off down the lane, leaving their canoe tied up under the trees. It was well hidden from the road and they knew it would be quite safe till they returned. It was not very far into Shelford, and they soon reached the little police office with its solitary occupant. They eagerly told their tale to him. But when they came to a breathless end, he looked at them almost sadly.
" What joke will you young gentlemen try-on next?" he said in tones of pity. "Do you really think you can fool me so easily as that? I suppose you know that I could take action against you for this? " he added more fiercely.
" But it's quite true," insisted Bunny angrily. "And if you don't believe us, ring up Sergeant Burkin at the station in Cambridge-he knows us both."
" I will," assented the policeman firmly. "And just you wait here whilst I do it." He slipped into the next room.
They could not help being amused at his pigheadedness, though all the same it was annoying to have their word doubted.
Very soon, however, they heard the telephone tinkle as it rang off, and the policeman came back to them,
" Well," he said more affably. "The sergeant seems to think it's all right. He's bringing out a car with some men to see what's wrong. You will, of course, wait, gentlemen, and show them the place."
